Anita: Speaking Truth to Power

Friday – Sunday, March 7 – 9 / 7 pm
Directed by Frieda Mock
2013, USA, 84 min

Presented as part of International Women’s Day, this film by Academy Award winning director Freida Mock, tells the harrowing and inspiring story of Anita Hill, the elegant, dignified African-American woman who charged Supreme-Court nominee Clarence Thomas with sexual harassment in 1991 Senate hearings. The hearings were pure, raw, gripping theater, watched by millions on national television: a struggle between a man with everything to gain and a woman with everything to lose. The event brought sexual politics into the national consciousness, and empowered Anita Hill’s fight for social justice. This will be Hill’s story in a literal sense: for the first and only time, she’ll participate in a film about her life before, during, and after the hearings. How did a religious, conservative, bookish African-American—the last of 13 children in a devout family on a remote Oklahoma farm—become a venerated and hated American icon, brought unwillingly to fame by the raw and rowdy intersection of sex, politics, and power?
